Mas de la Bousquette

Lussan, Gard

A wonderfully comfortable place to come home to after sightseeing, walking and exploring - a gem for couples or families holidaying together


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8



Lots of history to soak up in this 500-year-old mas, long ago a silkworm farm and later for sheep. Beautiful apartments sit around the higgledy-piggledy roofed courtyard, sharing a pool for guests and several garden areas next to the owners’ house (where dogs and chickens roam). Kate and Graham’s thoughtful restorations and extras for guests are spot on – find ancient stone walls, an iPad loaded with information and a welcome app, bikes to borrow. A vaulted barn is now La Bergerie, with white stone ceilings sweeping over simply styled spaces, and a secure terrace perfect for guests with a small pet. Open steps lead up to Le Grenier, formerly a grain store, sleeping four in sleek bedrooms under ancient beams, and Le Murier, where silkworms once spun their magic in the tower. Just right for honeymooners, who can look over lavender to medieval Lussan. A short walk up the road leads to the village, one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France with a programme of events in the summer. So much to do – visit Uzès, hike in the Cévennes, taste wines and visit Roman ruins including the extraordinary Pont du Gard.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Kate Langley

  • We are midway between the wonderful cities of Avignon, Nimes and Uzes, and the magnificent Cevennes and Ardeche mountains. Explore!
  • 5 restaurants in walking distance - Pizza van weekly. And of course our own gas and wood fired barbecues.
  • Walk or cycle in to the Garrigue straight from the Mas. Hundreds of miles of way-marked 'sentiers'. Maps and guides are provided. La Bergerie is ideal for dog owners with a gated courtyard - well behaved pets are welcome!
  • 8 acres of landscaped gardens at the foot of one of the 'Plus Beaux Villages'. There's always a quiet spot for that chilled evening sundowner. By the willow pond, in the boules garden, under the olives in the pool garden or on your own private terrace.
  • Foodie paradise, from Uzès' famed twice weekly market, to truffle fairs, olive oil mills, goat cheese farms and the vineyards of the Cote du Rhone. Try them all on a gourmet tour. Or arrange a wine tasting at the Mas - available for groups of 6 or more.
  • Welcome supper ' à la Provençal' each week; the perfect chance to meet other guests and share tips. A fun and informal three course supper sourcing local ingredients and wines.
